Real Weddings is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary and in honor of this milestone, we are checking back in with our beautiful cover models! We’ve been so lucky to work with over 60 local brides these past 10 years and we’re eager to see where they are now.

Where and when did you get married?
My husband and I got married at Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln on May 26, 2013.
Any children (fur or human)?
I have 1 human boy, who is 3 years old.
What do you do for a living?
My career is a wedding photographer.
Where are you currently living?
I currently live in Citrus Heights.
What do you enjoy doing locally?
Sacramento has so many beautiful parks and amenities. I love spending my downtime with the family at the Park, Sacramento Zoo, or trying out the local restaurants.
Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give to yourself on your wedding day?
If I could give one [piece of] advice to myself, knowing what I know now, I would have done a trial hair run and hired a true makeup and hair professional. It turned out nice, but it wasn’t my ideal up-do.
What is your favorite part of marriage?
My favorite party of a marriage is knowing that someone loves me unconditionally and looks forward to seeing me everyday – someone that I know I can always count on.
Lastly, how was your Cover Model experience?
I had a great time at the cover model photo shoot. It was a wonderful experience working with professionals in the beauty and wedding industry. Everyone was was very professional and I loved how all the images turned out. It was truly a remarkable and unforgettable experience.
